There is no way anyone could possibly accuse the Rangers of not trying to put the best possible team on the ice.

The Stanley Cup is fetching. As is any championship.

Look above.

Teams go through their periods of success and periods of failure.

A bounce here, and a bounce there, and the Rangers have way more then 4 Cup banners hanging in the rafters. A bounce here and a bounce there, and there are no banners.
And you really didn't even get into the draft rules which pretty much meant that any player within a 150 (I think it was 150) miles of your arena was yours first if you wanted them, which really favored Canadian teams for quite a few years.
